This game is one of the most addictive games I have ever played. It captures all the things of the real Playboy empire. Throwing parties, making issues of magazines, shooting photos yourself, women wearing sexy cloths, fake boobs, and a wee bit of sex.
You can play missions or just free play. Pick women to put on the cover, and like I said take the cover photos yourself, get into relationships, shoot photos of celebrities, and choose the cloths they wear for it.
One part I liked about this game is you don't need to unlock to ability for your playmates or girls to go topless, you get the ability right off the bat. But, the boobs are just a tad pixily, and just look fake, but thats how playboy is right? You can engage in sex with any girl in the game, but, like The Sims, you have to build a good relationship with them. But that takes about 2 minutes, LITERALLY! When you do engage in sex, if they aren't your girlfriend, you do it on the couch. If they are, then you can do it on the couch, AND the bed. But, only the boobs are reviled. They both wear a bottom. So sorry for you hard core porn lovers out there.
The only downsides is it would be cool if you could somehow make your own playmate. Choose all the physical characteristics, profession, and everything. The other downside is the camera is can just get annoying.
Summing it up, you get the freedom of The Sims (if not more) If you can do it in The Sims, you can do it here, except going into detail of creating a character, or even creating a character at all. You also have missions too. It's not like The Sims where its basiacally just build a house, but real missions that require some thinking.
Very bottom line: If you want to play a sexier, funner, more adicting game than The Sims, pick this up. You will NOT regret it.
